Why We Like This Place

The Dream Inn, a Santa Cruz landmark, has just reopened after a fantastic retro-chic makeover—and their stylish new oceanview banquet space is so ready for primetime. The versatile beachfront ballroom captures a panoramic vista of the sparkling Monterey Bay. (We recommend breakfasting on your private, view-filled balcony the next morning!)
